    Default Ducati Monster 821 launched in India at Rs. 9.51 Lacs

    Ducati India has launched the all new Monster 821 in India. The new Monster carries an introductory price tag of Rs. 9.51 lacs (Ex-Showroom, India). It pays homage to the legacy of the Monster 900 which revolutionized the motorcycle world. It also features several aesthetic and functional features drawn from the flagship Monster 1200.



    Sergi Canovas Garriga, Managing Director of Ducati India
    said, “For the last 25 years, the Monster has consistently delighted biking enthusiasts across the world. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Monster and we’re very proud to introduce the new Monster 821 in India, in this special year. The new Monster 821 has been designed with the aim of creating a slim and a sporty motorcycle which highlights the original concept of “Sport Naked” and gives maximum riding pleasure.”


    Monster 821 Features


    The all new Monster 821 has an agile look with a fully redesigned tank, tail and an all-new exhaust. The headlight on the new Monster 821 is both classic and iconic. The colour TFT display also makes its debut on the Monster 821.

    The Euro 4 compliant liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° engine delivers 109 bhp at 9250 rpm. It makes 86 Nm of torque at 7750 rpm. The 821’s engine guarantees fun and usability that are within reach of all.

    The Monster 821 features Brembo brakes, with dual 320 mm discs and M4-32 monobloc radial calipers up front. A refined suspension system includes a 43 mm fork at the front and a rear monoshock with spring preload adjustment. The new Monster 821 comes shod with a Pirelli Diablo Rosso III 120/70 tyre on the front and 180/55 on the rear.

    The Monster 821 also features the Ducati Safety Pack. It is comprised of Bosch 9.1MP ABS system and Ducati Traction Control, both of which have adjustable intervention levels. Similarly, maximum power and throttle response can be adjusted via the Power Modes. Riding Modes allow easy adjustment of ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Power Modes. It lets the riders transform the new Monster 821 into three different motorcycles, each with a distinct personality.

    Ducati Monster 821 is also available in the classic Ducati yellow paint job that has been much revered in the past. It will also be available in Ducati Red and Black colour options.




    The bookings for the new Monster 821 are now open and deliveries will start by the first week of June across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi and Kolkata.

    I guess that’s the final nail in the Ducati’s coffin.. would you rather buy this over street triple, Z900 or Z1000?

    That depends: are any of those bikes 90-deg V-twins? Lots of performance riders *prefer* the grunt from a twin over the fizz of a multi-cylinder. The more widely-spaced power pulses from the motor let the rear tire hook up better under acceleration, for example. You might as well be wondering why anyone would bother with the Ducati 996 when the Honda CBR1000 is so much cheaper, or why anyone would shell out for a Ferrari. Because make no mistake, that's what this is: Ducati is the Lamborghini or Ferrari of the motorcycle world. It might be more finicky than the Japanese bikes (adjusting desmodromic valves is a COLOSSAL pain in the backside compared to shim-under-bucket), and cost more, but there's an ineffable something about the bike that its Japanese and British (and German and Austrian) competitors lack. I happen to not be all that enamored of Ducatis; I find that they feel slightly fragile to me, but I love the sound, and they have a good 25-30 years of racing success under their belts now that proves that the Desmo can be a competitor and a winner against the other marques.

    Ducati has to be the Ferrari of motorcycle world. Racing success, and somewhat more mainstream than the other Italian exotics.
    MV Agusta has to be the Lamborghini

    On further review, I have to assert that Ducati is the Lamborghini of motorcycles, even though Lambo doesn't have anything like Ferrari's racing pedigree. My assertion is based on the fact that Ducati is actually *owned* by Lamborghini now (Ok, technically it's owned by Audi, but was purchased and is controlled through Lambo which Audi also owns).

    So maybe Aprilia is the Ferrari? Also, in addition to MV Agusta, you also have Moto Guzzi in there. Guzzi is, I guess, the Alfa Romeo? So where does Vyrus fall in there? Are they the Bugatti of bikes (yeah, probably, since a Vyrus goes OTR at about 45lakh in Italy, which probably puts it at upwards of a Crore in India).
